    Frozen Synapse meets Blood Bowl

    I know there are a fair few Frozen Synapse fans around here, so this might be of interest:

    While I like the idea of the simultaneous turns in a BB-like game, one of the things I like most about BB is the persistence and leveling up players along with the risk of losing them altogether. Anything like that planned?

    Pretty much this.

    "Full single player (Skirmish and Season) and multiplayer (various modes)" - that "Season" would suggest a persistent mode in single player at least.

    Will there be management aspects / player stats?

    There will almost certainly be stats and some form of upgrading for players in single player. Multiplayer will likely be more “class-based”, with specialist receivers and blockers, say, rather than about upgrading individual stats.
    From the FAQ.

    Yes, it sounds very much open still, but from some of their stuff about the next iteration of Frozen Synapse itself, they definitely seem keen to make you more attached to your little guys.

    I hope the character designs aren't final, because right now they look a bit soulless...

    I bought this last week. It's pretty great.

    I really bounced off Frozen Synapse, so I'm really happy to have clicked with FE so easily! I've seen Mr Dog Pants (he of the wavy avatar fame) in there so would be interesting if any more turn-based ball sports game players have purchased the Beta?

    I've played it a little so far. I must admit I've not really clicked with it yet. I'll try hopping back in again.
